Comparing the two witnesses of Jesus Christ.

Virgin Birth

The following is from 4 Mormon:

BIBLE’S WITNESS OF CHRIST

BOOK OF MORMON’S WITNESS OF CHRIST

Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem. (Matthew 2:1 and Micah 5:2)

Jesus Christ was born at Jerusalem. (Alma 7:10)

Jesus Christ promised: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.”
(Matthew 24:35)

“…there are many plain and precious things taken away from the book, which is the book of the Lamb of God.” —1 Nephi 13:28

During Jesus’ death, darkness covered the earth for three hours. (Matthew 27:45)

At Jesus’ death, darkness covered the earth for three days. (Helaman 14:20, 27)

Christ’s followers were first called “Christians” at Antioch (after Jesus’ ascension into Heaven).
(Acts 11:26)

Christ’s followers were called “Christians” at 73 B.C. (70+ years before Christ was born).
(Alma 46:15).

Melchizedek (a picture of Christ in the Old Testament) was “without father.” (Hebrews 7:3)

Melchizedek “did reign under his father.”
(Alma 13:18)

  1. Some change the word literally in their books and teachings, while others may only change the word in their own hearts and minds, reading the Bible, but not living accordingly.

  2. Rob says:

    The Book of Mormon and the Doctrine and Covenants teach that in the end ONLY Christ’s GRACE will save us.

    2 Nephi 2:23 For we labor diligently to write, to persuade our children, and also our brethren, to believe in Christ, and to be reconciled to God; for we know that it is by GRACE that we are saved, after all we can cdo. 24 And, notwithstanding we believe in Christ, we akeep the law of Moses, and look forward with steadfastnes unto Christ, until the law shall be fulfilled. 25 For, for this end was the law given; wherefore the law hath become dead unto us, and we are made alive in Christ because of our faith; yet we keep the law because of the commandments.

    D&C 20: 30 And we know that justification through the GRACE of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is just and true; 31 And we know also, that asanctification through the GRACE of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is just and true,

  3. Rob:

    I am familiar with the verse in the Book of Mormon you cited. That little part in 2 Nephi that says you’re saved by grace “AFTER ALL YOU CAN DO” tends to refute your assertion that Mormonism teaches that “only Christ’s grace will save us.”

    Sounds like it’s Christ’s grace AND your effort, and that Christ’s grace cannot take affect until AFTER you do all that you can do.

    So a question, Rob. Have you done ALL that you can do?
